One other person signed up to go on meetup, but got a flat and couldn’t make it. I went up Nebraska Notch and then north on the LT to about 0.2 miles north of Butler Lodge, where the trail turns east long the base of some cliffs. I continued past Wallace Cutoff because I’d met three backpackers coming south who told me of a large blowdown there. I cleared a lot of small stuff and about 12 trees needing the chainsaw that day, mostly stuff one could step over or leaners one could duck under, but which impeded easy passage, but also perhaps 4 bigger ones really blocking the trail.
